  • Quick/Rolled Oats - 2 cups I used quick oats
  • Banana - 2 large - very ripe, peeled and mashed
  • Nuts - 1/4 cup chopped (I used walnut, almonds and pecans)
  • Raisins - 1/4 cup
  • Cranberry - 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Cinnamon powder - pinch
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/8 tsp


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit and place parchment paper on 9×9 square baking pan and grease it with butter/olive oil/cooking spray
  • In a wide mixing bowl mash the banana well without lumps. Add vanilla extract to it and mix well
  • Add the oats, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder and salt to the banana and mix well. Add nuts, raisins and cranberry and give a final mix
  • Transfer it the mixture into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 28 - 33 minutes until the edges begin to crisp. Cool it and cut the bars. Store in room temperature and enjoy
